Published October 23, 2017

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Australia-based website CyclingTips.com has hired Caley Fretz to join its editorial team.

Fretz leaves his position as senior editor at VeloNews, where he'd worked since 2010. He will join the existing CyclingTips U.S. team of editor Neal Rogers and tech editor James Huang. All three are based in Boulder.

"I've long admired the talent of the CyclingTips team and the ingenuity of its work," Fretz said. "I'm excited to join them in telling cycling's best and most beautiful stories."

Fretz and Rogers worked together at VeloNews for five years, where Rogers was editor from 2011 through 2015. Fretz was VeloNews tech editor from 2012 to 2015, and was promoted to senior editor in 2016. He's covered events such as the Giro d'Italia, Tour de France, and 2016 Olympic Games.

"I'm thrilled to be working alongside Caley again," Rogers said. "He's a talented writer and cyclist. We work extremely well together, and it's no secret that I had always hoped we would be part of the same editorial team again."

At CyclingTips, Fretz will focus on products and lifestyle, gravel and adventure riding, and WorldTour racing, and will also manage the CyclingTips Podcast. His title will be senior editor.

"I've long admired Caley's work and creativity and I'm thrilled to have him part of our team to further our investment and commitment to the U.S. market" said CyclingTips' founder and publisher, Wade Wallace.

In recent months, CyclingTips has added industry veteran Steve Brawley, to manage commercial media sales, as well as Nick Ramey, to manage its Emporium online merchandise channel.

Along with North American sales director Mark Gouge and Ella CyclingTips editor Anne-Marije Rook, Fretz becomes the seventh U.S.-based CyclingTips employee.

Fretz will start with CyclingTips on Tuesday. He can be reached at caley.fretz@cyclingtips.com.
